You can call Lagos the Wild Wild West of Africa since you have to shine your eyes or be toasted. Being naïve and ignorant in Lagos is the biggest crime you will commit against yourself because there is more to living in Lagos than meets the eyes. There are twelve significant incidents that you are bound to encounter at least one of them when you go to Lagos to earn a living (hustle). You can only escape them if you are one among the gods or informed. Of course, Lagos has a way of absorbing people, after all, thousands go to Lagos daily, but there are prices you have to pay; you can call it a test or an initiation if you wish. But just one of these experiences can take a lot from you that you will seek the face of God for consolation. Fred experienced all the twelve of them. The questions you will ask – how did he manage to survive it; and what do you stand to learn? As for how he managed to survive it, you just have to read the novel to know. You will get to understand Lagos better; as a visitor, you will know what to expect; and a Lagosian you will relate to the experiences.
